You have some real spectacular examples like Barcelona which really captured their moment in the sun and is now the number four tourist destination in Europe. On the other hand, you have other places like Atlanta, which is on no one’s top visitation list in the United States, despite the fact that they were the center of the world’s attention for three weeks back in ’96.”
